8 Night Southern Caribbean Holiday (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 19, 2015
Ship: Emerald Princess
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: C-615
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 2 years ago

we thoroughly enjoyed our eight-day vacation cruise aboard the Emerald Princess. The seas were a bit rough on the way down to our island destinations and the wind was really blowing against the ship but we had a great time and the sun was out enough for all of us to enjoy it. The days at sea were great, the most we have ever had, and e found lots of family activities to do on board that filled our days with smiles and laughter.

The on-board crew was terriffic and we enjoyed the comedian, the juggler and the cruise staff's work with trivia and bingo everyday.

Food was great along with the wonderful service provided by our wait staff, Disppointed there was not a lobster night. Head Waiter Luis was super attentive and a great asset throughout our trip.

Ship Quality

Ship is starting to show its age even though it was coming out of dry dock. New restaurannts were interesting but carpet is showing wear and hallways are starting to smell musty.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Cabin size was bigger then we are use too which was a nice change but we didn't make much use of the balcony although it was nice that it was there. Had multiple plumbing problems with no hot water and no working toilet first two days. Items were fixed but were told this particular part of the ship is notorious for plumbing issues. Notices musty smell in hallways in some areas of ship.

Ship Tip

Great ship. We have been on it many times over the years, Crew is excellent.
Starting to show its age in some areas.
